Other Information

  • One Brighton is an attempt at sustainable living with the project having its own rooftop allotments for residents, and a shared car pool to reduce car ownership.
  • The building is one of the first of this scale in the United Kingdom to be been designed to be airtight to minimise the heat-loss at winter and reducing associated heating costs.
  • Many of building the materials come from natural sources such as the wood fibre insulation that is used.
  • Mounted on the roof will also be solar panels generating on average 7,600 kWh/yr to help provide power whilst elsewhere in the development is a biomass burner powered by local wood-chip. The entirety of the rest of the power consumption of the project will be from 100% renewable energy sources purchased off-site, thus when combined with the rooftop allotments the project should actually be carbon negative.
  • The building has been designed to respond to the junction it overlooks with sharp projecting triangular balconies with bright reds and yellows under them adding a strong visual focal point.
